Sorry, the only thing I can think of is a couple things for the Mana base.

Cabal Coffers,Crypt of Agadeem ,or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could help you out.

I'm running a couple mono decks. I like switching out your basic lands for Snow-Covered Swamps and running Extraplanar Lens.

I love decks with a theme! +1 They are unique and fun, which is why I love EDH. Just wanted to say that this deck is insane and I hope you don't mind if I use this as a frame for my mono-black EDH which'll be made withing the next couple decks. A lot of your combos are mana intensive, so because you play Snow-Covered Swamps is Extraplanar Lens not worthwhile? Also, how about Exquisite Blood? While I hate the combo because I feel like it's too easy, the one card can help keep you live to get some of your combos out. they seem rather card intensive (once someone knows what is going on) so would the extra life be relevant? Last question, is Necropotence too slow?

Since you're already running Extraplanar Lens I would recommend switching Swamps for Snow-Covered Swamps

MartialArt you might also want to consider replacing swamp with Snow-Covered Swamp for Snow-Covered Swamp+Extraplanar Lens

Caged Sun applies only to the person that controls it.

Gauntlet of Power applies to ALL players.

Extraplanar Lens applies to ALL players, but that's why you play Snow-Covered Swamp to give only yourself the benefit.

Any pros or cons to each of these cards? I run a Demon Themed Deck which cost a lot of mana to play. In addition I keep running into "Prison Decks" which have enchantments such as Ghostly Prison. My deck is mono black so I already run card;cabal coffers to help with the mana generation, but I am looking to take it a step further. I want to run mostly card:snow-covered swamps with Extraplanar Lens to but the cost of purchasing 30 Snow-Covered Swamps and Extraplanar Lens is a little expensive at the moment. Is there a downside to running Caged Sun as a cheaper alternative? In the long run I can slowly replace my Basic Swamps for the Snow covered versions, but Caged Sun seems almost too good to be true for a $9.00 card? Also, any good cards to give my artifacts or lands blanket Hexproof? I run Darksteel Forge but that doesn't keep my artifacts or lands from being destroyed my spells or other means. Thanks in advance for any help.

Basically, yes. For the sake of clarity, let's rearrange some things so that they're easier to follow:

  • You tap one Snow-Covered Swamp for , then Extraplanar Lens immediately gives you another (a triggered ability that makes mana and triggers from another mana ability is also a mana ability, so it will resolve right away without using the stack)
  • You use this to activate Cabal Coffers, which produces 10x
  • You tap the other 9 Snow Covered Swamps for each, and Extraplanar lens gives you another for each of them
  • 10x + 9x + 9x = 28x

A couple of suggestions.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combos with Cabal Coffers, although you aren't running many non Swamps, it is still a good card. It is especially nice if you ever decide to include Filth in the list.

Mana is extremely important, especially in a deck that wants to play many expensive creatures.

All of your Swamps should be swapped out for Snow-Covered Swamps. Add in Extraplanar Lens and you just doubled the mana from your Basics. Extraplanar Lens looks at the name of the Land, so you use Snow-Covered as to give yourself the benefit without also giving it to your opponents.

Caged Sun is another way to double your mana. Crypt Ghast is another. Magus of the Coffers is a second Cabal Coffers.

Gauntlet of Power is another idea although it has the drawback of giving the benefit to all players. Anybody else playing will receive the additional mana and their creatures will be pumped. People not running are able to benefit if somebody has Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth on the field. I tend to keep this one out of my decks, but figured I would mention it.

I personally find Burnished Hart to be better than Wild-Field Scarecrow. They both cost to cast. Burnished Hart's ability costs extra but it puts the Lands directly on the Battlefield instead of your Hand. I don't find that the extra toughness on Scarecrow is relevant.

I think that's it for now, I only did a quick scan.
